Local Attractions
We are about two miles from the Works, Ebbw Vale, which was the home to the 2010 National Eisteddfod – one of the worlds’ greatest cultural festivals.

The Garden Festival site is just over two miles away with outlet fashion shops such as Gap and Marks & Spencer, Restaurants and an owl Sanctuary. This year saw the opening of the UK’s longest Supertubing run and children's Play castle, a must for children and adults alike.

We have an abundance of attractions in and around our area – Big Pit Heritage site is about fifteen minutes away and is open virtually all year round.

Beaufort Theatre is situated fifty yards from our front door! To go on their mailing list you can contact them on 01495 355 800. Why not make a weekend of it!

Blaenau Gwent lies on the fringe of the Brecon Beacons and at the Heads of the Valley region of Southern Wales. It is an area of startling contrasts from steeply wooded valleys in the south to open remote moorland in the north. This rich tapestry boasts a wealth of history from the Bronze Age, catching glimpses of medieval times and a profusion of industrial heritage sites that can be explored by foot, cycle, horseback or car.

You could visit Silent Valley Nature Reserve in Cwm, near Ebbw Vale and stroll through this natural beech woodland believed to be the highest in the United Kingdom. With so much history to discover in the area, a visit to Blaenau Gwent will not leave you disappointed.

For the chocaholics amongst you a visit to ‘Chocs Away’ in Blaenavon is a must. Chocolate workshops are held throughout the year and you get to take home what you have made!

South Wales has so much to offer and we have an array of information leaflets with ideas of days out displayed on our coffee tables.
